Unfortunately, that card I was going to buy has now been discontinued... Would this be just as good?

If you're after a 460, get this one, it's £120 in the Today Only section
https://secure.scan.co.uk/aspnet/Sho...ductId=1440395

Scan is my favourite tech etailer, I regularly trawl the Today Only section for deals.

The 1GB is generally worth getting over the 768MB. Especially considering the price.

Edit: Oh, and even though it's in the Today Only section, as long as you keep that link then the deal works for about a week.
Edit2: Another piece of advice, try to buy everything from the same etailer, it saves on shipping costs.

Oh thanks for the tips! ;D
I personally didn't want to get the SE version, I thought it was more worth getting the SC version in all honesty.

Corsairs are very high quality PSU's. I'd recommend one if you can find one for a good price.

Yeah Corsair seem to have a good reputation for psus, though I have been told to keep clear of the builder series...
Any particular reasons?
